Transport in Plants Water moves from the roots to the leaves, up the xylem via the TRANSPIRATION STREAM E.g. Eat Quorn (mycoprotein) and Stopping over fishing (conserve stocks, change fishing methods, set catch quotas) • Large surface area • Short diffusion pathway • (only one cell between blood and air in lungs) • Good blood supply • (to take absorbed products of digestion – using diffusion and active transport to get it from the intestine to the blood) Reduce food miles(how far food travels) = Less fuel used and less pollution The phloem transports dissolved sugars to the rest of the plant from the leaves. Sustainable Food ‘producing food in a way that can continue for many years’ The xylem transports water and minerals up the plant from roots to leaves. Efficient Food ‘producing food in a way stops energy loss and conserves biomass’ Short food chains are better then long ones! Energy and biomass is lost at every stage. Grow your own mycroprotein – Fungus Fusarium Roots also have a large surface area (provided by root hair cells) as they absorb most of the water and minerals a plant will need. Energy lost as movement Adaptations for exchange in the intestines (absorbing your food) Using a fermenter Energy lost as heat Aerobic respiration It’s a living thing! Waxy cuticle – water and gas proof. Stops too much water loss. The way we use the earth resources can have long and short term effects on the environment Villi/villus - Creased up surface of intestine for really large surface area. Keeps everything evenly mixed Lots of chloroplast for photosynthesis. • Water is lost more quickly when… • Its windy • Its dry • (steeper concentration gradient between leaves and air) • Its hot • (more photosynthesis takes place so more stomata are open) Poor cows and chickens Control the temperature – reduce heat made by respiration Intensive Farming: Stop energy loss by limiting movement(keep in small enclosed space) and keeping animals warm (keeping them inside). Is this ethically OK? Data we use to make conclusions about the environment must be checked to ensure it is valid (has been collected correctly), is reproducible (similar experiments can be done to check the results). This is much easier said then done! Biology Unit 3 Grow in sugar syrup Is there real evidence or is something just an opinion? Monitor pH and temperature careful Energy Drinks - For when your DEHYDRATED Contain: Water, sugar and mineral ions. Water – to rehydrate Sugar – for energy Minerals – to replace those lost during sweating. Lungs Water loss from the leaves is called TRANSPIRATION Adaptations for gaseous exchange (in your lungs) Trachea (windpipe) • Large surface area • Short diffusion pathway • (only one cell between blood and air in lungs) • Steep concentration gradient. • Remember: a substance will move from where there's a lot to where there's a little. • This is helped with good blood supplyand Breathing(to take absorbed oxygen away-bring CO2 to lungs / to replace the oxygen as its absorbed and remove CO2) CO2 enters leaf by diffusion Water leaves leaf by evaporation Ribs (protect your lungs) Thorax All your chest space If more water is lost then can be replaced the plant will WILT. Evidence – With normal levels of exercise water is just as good Leaves are thin and flat giving them a large surface area for diffusion of gases (CO2 in and oxygen out). Guard cells around stomata can open and close to let CO2 in but stop too much water being lost! Alveoli – Air sacs in the Lungs! You have loads of these wrapped in capillaries. Osmosis WATER diffusing from where it is a lot of it to where there is less of it. Diaphragm Artificial breathing Active Transport This is when some thing moves against the concentration gradient. Low to High! It needs energy to happen! But means ions can be absorbed from soil and sugars and salts can move into cells. Positive pressure – pushing the air in. Water moved up a plant stem from cell to cell by osmosis. Lots of water keeps the cell rigid. Benefits: Not invasive (just a mask), can aid the paralysed for years and can be used during surgery. Can be used at home! OK sometimes its placed in the trachea Negative pressure – a vacuum is created outside the body moving the chest up and causing air to be drawn in. Remember: A concentrated substance actually contains less water. The Iron Lung Benefits: Will keep you alive. Drawbacks: Very restricting and out dated. Must stay in hospital. (not really used anymore) Water moves in and out of cell depending on the concentration of the solution surrounding them. Through a partially permeable membrane.
Biofuels Biogas (mainly methane) – gas you can burn for energy Coronary arteries supply the heart with blood – blockages can lead to heart attack! How to remove a blockage… - Fuels made by using yeast or bacteria to ferment organic material Your Heart – The Pump! (keeping your blood moving) Cars can be easily converted to run on biofuels The heart has values to stop the blood flowing backwards It’s uses living bacteria so needs food and warmth Blockages in blood vessels can stop oxygen reaching the heart. This can happen due to age or a bad diet. Step 1: Find a doctor! Step 2: Get a STENT! Ethanol is made by feeding sugary plants to yeast under anaerobic conditions (no oxygen) Pulmonary Vena cava The ethanol is then distilled out to use in cars. Pulmonary (that’s your right not my right) Beware! If you grow crops for fuel you have less crops to eat. Scientist are trying to find a way to use the less edible parts of plants. Organic waste including carbohydrates CO2 absorbed in photosynthesis is equal to CO2 released during burning. No extra CO2 is added to the atmosphere. Anaerobic decay = no oxygen The blood coming from the lungs and going to the body is oxygenated. Comes in family and city size! When ventricles contract blood is force out of the heart Increasing amounts of greenhouse gases make it harder for the heat to escape the atmosphere. Increasing the temperature of the planet. The blood coming from the body and going to the lungs is deoxygenated. Veins go away from your heart • This could lead to: • Changes in weather and flooding • Rising in sea levels • (as ice caps melt) • Changes in migration and distribution of organisms. Remember: You have a double circulatory system. Blood goes through your heart twice during one circuit. Don’t forget! Cows and rice fields have increased the levels of methane (a greenhouse gas). Arteries go toward your heart Stents can open up narrow or blocked arteries. The Main Three Blood Vessels Fixing leaky valves Under high pressure valves can become damage allowing blood to flow backwards. We can replace valves with biological animals valves but these only last about 15 years. Or Use Mechanical valves made form plastics and metals but you will need lifelong medicine to stop blood clotting problems. Peat bogs contain trapped CO2. When gardeners use peat they release it back into the atmosphere. Pesticides (to kill pests) and Herbicides (to kill weeds) can pollute land. They can also enter food chains and dangerous levels of toxins build up on top producers. The air becomes polluted as un-burnt fuels are released causing global dimming. Deforestation: Global Warming The removal and destruction of woods and forests… Veins have valves to stop backflow. Arteries need thick walls as they are under a lot of pressure! • Increase CO2 • (as wood is burnt and decays) • Reduces CO2 removed by photosynthesis Capillaries link arteries and veins. The have thin walls so oxygen and glucose can diffuse out to cells and waste and CO2 can diffuse back from cells. CO2is released in large amounts as fossil fuels are burnt. Think back to the carbon cycle Blood Blood plasma (liquid) carries dissolved food, CO2 and urea. Also reduces biodiversity! – the variety of different organisms in an area. Sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxide pollution from factories forms acid rain. This damages tress and makes lakes to acidic for life. Destroying habitatsfor farming and quarrying. Artificial Hearts Sometimes the heart is so damaged it needs replacing. This can mean waiting for a heart donor. We can use temporary heart replacements but have nothing permanent so far. Using up non-renewable fuels and resources quickly! White Blood cells Help defend the body against disease Producing more industrial, chemical, medical waste and sewage Fertilisers, chemicals and untreated waste Electricity and Fuel Red Blood cells carry oxygen Remember: this effects food chains too! Space This means we use more… Platelets help with clotting (think scabs) Food and Water More food and better healthcare Recent years have seen massive population growth Ecology Remember: Red blood cells are biconcave discs giving them a bigger surface area and have no nucleus to fit in more haemoglobin. This lets them carry more oxygen as oxyhaemoglobin. Advantages: You don’t have to wait for a donor and there is no chance of organ rejection. THEY KEEP YOU ALIVE!!! Disadvantages: They're big! Blood clotting problems mean lifelong drugs, normally mean staying in hospital and they’re expensive. If you suffer blood loss you will need a transfusion – Real blood needs to be matched from donors. Eutrophication – Fertilisers are washed into rivers and lakes polluting it. Artificial Blood: Plasma & Saline, PFCs and Haemoglobin-based products Advantages: Readily available, doesn’t have to be stored in a fridge, will work with any blood type. Disadvantages: Expensive! Doesn’t carry oxygen as well as real blood, doesn’t always mix with real blood, is broken down quickly by the body and can cause side effects.
Things that unbalance your bodies internal environment: Digestion Controlling Temperature Carbon dioxide is produced when your cells respire. A build up would be dangerous so CO2 is removed by your lungs when you breath out. Maintaining a core body temperature (37oC) is the job of the thermoregulatory centre in the brain. When its cold! Blood vessels contract so heat can isn't lost by radiation. You don’t sweat so heat can’t be lost by evaporation. Hairs on the skin become erect to trap air for insulation. (this doesn’t work well in humans) You shiver which means your muscles are contracting and relaxing. This required respiration that produces heat. Waste production When its hot! Blood vessels dilate so heat can be lost by radiation. You sweat so heat can be lost by evaporation. (sweating is less effective in humid conditions) Hairs on the skin also lie flat. Movement When we sweat and pee our bodies lose water and ions. These need to be replaced so water doesn’t move in or out of cells (by osmosis) and damage them. It also helps us regulate temperature. Homeostasis – keeping your body in balance Excess protein (amino acids) is broken down by the liver. Why bother? If you get too hot your enzymes will denature and stop working. Too cold and they will work too slowly. Kidneys Making Urine Making sure you have enough water and getting rid of the waste. This creates UREAwhich passes into the blood. (urea is poisonous) Selective Reabsorption The kidneys filter out the urea and some water and salts. Remember it is a constant balancing act. Insulin has been used from pigs and other animals to treat diabetes. Recently genetic engineering means we can use bacteria to make pure human insulin. • Healthy kidneys: • Filter your blood (removing stuff) • And then reabsorb • ALL of the glucose • Some of the water and ions • (depending on what’s needed) • None of the urea • (remember we want to get rid of this – as well as extra water and ions we don’t need) The amount of urine depends on how much water your body needs to keep. This also affects the concentration. Oh and the yellow colour is from urobilins floating in it. This creates URINE which is stored in the bladder. Type 2 Diabetes - Cells stop responding to insulin even when the pancreas is making it. Eating a healthy diet low in carbohydrates, losing weight and exercise can help control this type. This tends to affect older people. If lifestyle changes don’t work drugs maybe needed. Type 1 Diabetes - Blood glucose can get fatally high as no insulin is released by the pancreas. Before meals insulin is injected so that glucose can be converted to glycogen if it is not needed. High carbohydrate diets are avoided but type 1 diabetics must eat regularly. There is no cure. (other than a panaceas transplant. Stem cells might be the answer) Server temperatures can lead to really problems. Very cold conditions can cause hypothermia where the core body temperature has fallen below 35oC. Very hot conditions can lead to heat stroke. This can also be caused by overheating during exercise. Controlling Blood Glucose The pancreasmonitors the amount of glucose in your blood. It can produce two hormones ISULIN and GLUCAGON. Insulin lowers blood sugar. Glucagon raises blood sugar. And if your kidneys stop working… You need this frequently and have to stay in hospital while it happens. Congratulations! Here’s the instructions to make a balloon to celebrate… Dialysis V’s Transplant Advantage: They keep you alive! Kidney Transplants Lets you lead a normal life! As blood passes through the dialysis machine waste and excess water and ions pass through the semi-permeable membrane into the dialysis fluid. (down the concentration gradients as there is none in the fluid to begin with) But The dialysis fluid contains the same concentration of glucose ions the blood should have so none moves out of the blood by diffusion. Damaged or diseases kidneys can be replaced by a healthy kidney from a donor. The recipients immune system might try to reject the new kidney. To avoid this we match donors and recipients as closely as possible. Immunosuppressant drugs are taken. Removes urea
